Even though the place is always busy both in the bar and restaurant the service is always outstanding. Food was good and wine was excellent

I booked a table for 5:45 intending to choose from the early evening menus as we were on a time limit and had a function to attend later the same night .
When taken to my table I was only given the full price menu. I had to ask for the fixed price menu and was told to order promptly in order to qualify for this menu.
We ordered steak but were told after a little while that there were no longer any steaks available , so we chose from the main menu anyway.
The food was of a good standard but nothing amazing , (the olives we had with drinks were rather soggy )
The staff were polite and attentive but I preferred the hotel restaurant and its atmosphere when the business first opened . The layout was better , slightly more formal and it was a far more enjoyable dining experience .the food was excellent at that time whereas now it felt like eating in a smarting pub .

Restaurant was quiet so lacked atmosphere. Staff attentive. Starters good but main course average. My friend’s chicken was greasy. My salad average. Would not rush back unless they change menu

2nd visit, which I worried wouldn’t live up to the first as it was so good first time. But I needn’t have worried, as it was even better! Excellent food, service & atmosphere. Will certainly go again, then we’ll see if it was that extra special thing that most restaurants miss - consistency.

Reliably good food and impeccable service, as usual. Only downside is that we weren’t too happy about people dining along with their dogs (which were not guide dogs). My husband is very allergic to dogs and had we been seated any nearer we would have had to move tables). Also, lighting could be dimmed a little.

This is the second time we have dined at the West Park Hotel, as Harrogate residents. The steak was so good on the first occasion that we decided to return for another. Again, the quality and service were excellent. The wine list was very good, and we chose the Sicilian red which was delicious. Thank you so much for our early Valentine’s night treat.

A very pleasant meal at a restaurant we have not been to before. The food was good and the service excellent. It was relatively good value.
We often eat out and enjoy good food, so we will be coming back again with friends who we dine with often.

Food excellent although service a little tardy. Waitress very nice but spent so much time gossiping with other diners that she forgot our drinks order.
Ambiance could be improved by dimming the lights. Main part of restaurant is so bright you need sunglasses.

Confusion over table, told sitting one place, then moved to small area in the back. Food was tasty, if a little small portion size. Disappointing having to pay extra for vegetables. Good staff while eating but in the bar...strange waiting staff wanted to chat too much and wouldn't leave us alone. Very poorly dressed. Couldn't order us a taxi. Had to ask for coats twice, given excuses 'she must not have heard you' rather than just getting them.

The menu was excellent and pretty good value, but I felt a medium glass of Merlot was very expensive, making the whole meal more expensive than expected.
Presentation of the food was good and everything was piping hot.
Service was top notch (from Chris).
I would be happy to go back, but I'll check the prices on the drinks first!
A comparable glass of wine in a similar establishment the following day was more than two pounds cheaper!

Really enjoyed our starters - my partner had roast beef but was very disappointed after such a delicious starter. I enjoyed my fish pie so many huge prawns salmon and cod and a lovely touch with the king scallop in top - only criticism would be a would have liked a tiny bit more mash.
Unfortunately the wrong cocktail was brought over - I am not a berry lover so had to explain that I hadn’t ordered that one - the waitress never said sorry she seemed very put out even though it was her mistake and then when the correct one was brought back it was hit onto the table without a word.

Great meal served super fast because we were on a tight timetable. I had a fabulous duck dish....meat quality was excellent and it was cooked to perfection. My daughter had the cod....again cooked to perfection. No need to buy extra sides, the dishes were complete and well balanced. Our compliments to the Chef.

Good food, service was poor. No gap between starter and main. As soon as starter was cleared within seconds the main arrived. Felt rushed.
Atmosphere poor due to loud drunks at the bar despite being only 8 pm. Their language was loud and offensive. We left rather than staying for pudding.

I made a notification of my citrus allergy before booking which the waiting staff said they didn't look at I had to remind them every time they brought something to the table for me with lemon in . They kindly brought some complementary beetroot soup of which I asked if it contains citrus as I reminded the same waiting staff of my allergy she said to be careful . They leaned across my guest to serve dishes when there was plenty of room around the table . Will not be recommending. Pity the food was delightful.

A lovely meal to celebrate a birthday. Delicious food well prepared and a good but not overwhelming choice. Excellent choice of wines - I think the West Park do this particularly well and can recommend the Pinot Noir. Service was attentive and friendly. Quiet on a Monday night but still enough people to make it welcoming.
